It is a sad moment when a young boy discovers he doesn't have enough money to buy the waggely tailed dog he sees in the pet store window. Nothing but that waggely tailed pup will do as a pet for the boy, so he's off to make some money to buy the dog of his dreams! Misadventures follow and by the end of the week the boy has less money than when he started. Thinking he will just say hello to the doggie in the window, the little boy finds the dog is gone. Someone else has bought the dog for a very special son to thank him for all the nice things he has done. Who could that lucky boy be? A story as irresistible as waggely tailed doggies and little boys.

The moral of this story is great! It is written very well, going along with the tune of the song so you may sing it if you'd like. The illustrations that accompany the story are beautiful. This is a wonderful story for children holding some great teaching lessons. Read full review
